I'm the first to admit I was a bit disappointed by Multiwinia. Barely any cooperative playing except in Assault, simplistic tactics, the interest wears quickly on me.
I bought Darwinia years ago and still play it. Multiwinia not so much, expecially when it's hard to find online partners.

I do admit, multiwinia is probably not the best game, nor will be in the future, but it's ideas are based off a different game, with modifications.Like I said, I'm just getting bored with the current maps, they're either to hard for about a minute, or too easy and can win, even without trying.So for me, I'm mod darwinia until the map editor comes out =|

Take advantage of this weekend's Steam sale (which includes Multiwinia) according to the firefox plugin there are 21 games running right now as opposed to the 1 or 2 previously :shock:

Specifically, the Greatest Indie Pack.

I've been playing Multiwinia today and yesterday much more than I ever did. Freaky thing is, I only found out about the Indie pack AFTER I started, and I think that it maybe even only got released after I started.

I knew the match count had increased a little, but honestly, this is just fucking ridiculous. :shock:

PS: The counts for Sunday are so low because the screenshot was taken at 3 AM.

I am still unsure why people insist on making their own servers all the time when there are plenty of empty ones.

I'm unsure why there are so many empty servers when people prefer not to use them.

Hopefully Multiwinia has gained a few players who really like the game, maybe we will see some new faces around here.

Don't remind me of that ladder... It's not my fault that I only win non-Dedwinia games and lose Dedwinia games all the time!!!


To revive Multiwinia (or I guess now would be more appropiate to say to keep it as alive as it is) we need to get NeoThermic to CLOSE DOWN HIS SERVERS. Someone who's worth more around these forums than me, please PM him?
